There are fragrances … and then again, there are fragrances. What is a fragrance? Simply put, it is a scent or a sweet smell. Jesus is the fragrant fragrance that is pleasing to anyone who perceives it. The wearer of the fragrant fragrance enjoys the benefits of the effect that fragrance has on those who perceive it. What does he or she enjoy? Attention that opens doors for help, unmerited favors, the ease with which difficult situations are smoothed out, healing for the sick, ability to win souls, etc. As it is in the physical, so it is in the spiritual. In fact, it should be the other way around. As it is in the spiritual, so it is in the physical.
What is she talking about? Great! As we have fragrances which we perceive with our olfactory sense, so also do we have auras which transcend from the spiritual to the physical realm. Meaning? That the aura you carry around has a direct impact on your day to day dealings with people, whether or not you realize it. The aura you have can either open doors for you, or slam doors (which you desperately need to be open) in your face…ouch! Still don’t understand? Okay, I am talking about the aura you get from spending time with Jesus.
There is no shortcut to it, if you want to live your life to its maximum capability. How do you spend time in His presence? Feed your spirit man with the word of God by reading your bible daily … praise … pray … worship … be spirit conscious and be consistent! It is not a task or duty to be performed. If it still feels like that to you, then ask for the grace to see it for what it truly is: a time of refreshing for you. A time and place where you “recharge your batteries” and you are good to go again.
When you do this continuously, you will notice a great difference in your circumstances. Then you will continuously taste and see that the Lord is good!
Hmmm . . . something smells great in here . . . Is it your fragrance? 🙂
